Looking at the parable of the dishonest steward closely through an
historical lens, we learn about what it means to be a steward and what a
Name means in the world of Jesus. What is your life saying about who
your Master is this week?
us, Lord, not to be anxious about earthly things, but to love
things heavenly; and even now, while we are placed among things
that are passing away, to hold fast to those that shall endure;
through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and
the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
NPR story: I took out some of the statistics that I have in my notes
for this story because I could not verify the percentages for 2011. (I
have them in a little diary from that day.) The economists were
bemoaning a drop in consumer confidence and the increase in personal

that you can find here show how we talk about the Economy as a demanding free-thinking entity, a god. Read how people talk about it.
